The Solano Community College women’s basketball team celebrated another championship season last Sunday with the end-of-season banquet which took place at the Hilton Garden Inn in Fairfield.
The Falcons were surrounded by family, friends, support staff, school administration and trustees who welcomed the team into the ballroom with a standing ovation.
There were plenty of awards given out this season – all-conference, academic all-conference, Falcon Award for academic excellence and the team’s Player of the Year. Every player was given her Bay Valley Conference champions t-shirt, which this year signified the team winning the title three straight years.
Coach Matt Borchert recognized the support staff as well.
“I have worked at a lot of colleges and the support our program receives is by far the best I have ever known,” he said. “Without you, we wouldn’t be celebrating tonight.”
The team’s championship banner served as a backdrop on the night and the highlight film debuted to rave reviews.
Congratulations to sophomore point guard Bree Domingo who was honored as the Player of the Year, which is an honor voted on by the players. Bree also took home the Falcon Award for her hard work in classroom.
“This was the closest race for the Falcon Award that I have had in my 10 years at Solano,” said Coach Matt. “This group did great things in the classroom and I am extremely proud of that.”
The banquet was the final one for assistant coaches George Molina, who served under Coach Matt for seven years, and Kate Shipp, was a player for Coach Matt before becoming an assistant this year. Their hard work and dedication to the program will be missed and was greatly appreciated!
